OSU defeats U of M

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

In our final CFC game of the year, we traveled to Ohio to see our hometown Golden Gophers take on the top-rated OSU Buckeyes on their home turf.  The undefeated OSU team would eventually take the win…but the final score of 28-14 shows a wider advantage than actually existed near the end of the game…the Gophers were actually within one score of a tie (or possibly a win) after a touchdown with 2:10 left in the fourth quarter, putting the score at 14-21.  An onside kick attempt went out of bounds though, and the Buckeyes scored a final touchdown on their last series to finally put the game out of reach – and preserving their perfect record.  The Gophers, fighting strong after the unexpected retirement of head coach Jerry Kill, fell to 1-4 in conference play, having also lost a very close game the previous week to a powerful Michigan team at Michigan.
